134. Louisiana Calling

134. Today we're cross-posting an episode of Louisiana Calling with Bruce France & Eliot Barron.  Today the microphone is reversed as Bruce (Magee) is interviewed by Bruce France & Eliot Barron for their podcast, Louisiana Calling.  If you're a fan of the Louisiana Anthology Podcast, you'll probably like Louisiana Calling as well.
  1. Erin Lierl, the Sidewalk Poet, is under the weather this week, so we are re-broadcasting one of her poems from a few months ago.
  2. This week in Louisiana history. December 15, 1802. Pres. Jefferson, worried of French takeover of La., seeks to purchase Isle of Orleans.
  3. This week in New Orleans history.  December 12, 1970.  The Doors last live performance ever at A Warehouse.  New Orleanians were excited to scoop up $5.00 general admission tickets to the Beaver Production 8 P.M show at A Warehouse, at 1820 Tchoupitoulas on December 12, 1970, which were available at popular venues such as Far Out, Sound City, and Fat Head.  The enthusiastic audience unwittingly witnessed the final live performance of the The Doors that night. On July 31, 1971 James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was found dead in a Paris apartment bathtub by his long-time companion Pamela Courson. He was 27 years old.
